Wm > Oct. IS. 18 . SOUTHERN MERCUK1. fl r~' Cn bill proposes to authorize him to buy th*> bords at the premium to which his wretched policy has boomed them. This is something worse than folly. By this policy he boomed the price of the bonds in the hands of the bondhoMers, and now you propose to buy these bonds back at. the increased price. Well, indeed, may the secretary of the treasury hesitate. He was authorized, it he saw proper, to buy under the law of March 3, 1881, but he was never auiborized by any law to first boom the bonds and then buy them back at the in- creased premium. If this proposition passes and the secretary undertakes to call in this money, I say to the business men of this country they had better prepare to stand from under. You all know that as well as I do. What shall be done, then? Ah, I will tell you the remedy. What power have we over these bond- holders? I wish I had every tax- payer of the country within sound of my voice. What nave we the power to ...

SOUTHEBH MERCURI. Oct. IS, 189S -< Weaver in North Carolina. General Weaver and his es- teemed wife, accompanied by Mrs. Mary E. Lease, arrived at Fayette- ville on the 25th ult. He was not expected until the 29th, but hav- ing struck the bottom of the rot ten democracy of Georgia at the third of his seven engagements there, he found that he would be lowering himself and the cause he represented to engage in any fur- ther assaults upon a party which was sick unto death and upon whose body gangrene was already making such rapid progress as to insure death in a very short time. In fact, the unpleasant odor of the almost breathlese corpse was that oí rotten eggs, and it was so offensive that it was evident that it would not, it could not, possibly live longer than November 8th, and to make further warfare on it under the circumstances would be consid- ered cowardly in the extreme. Tuesday at noon 2,500 farmers greeted the speaker at Favette- ville. Never before in the histoiy of thi...

Oct. 18, 1892. SOUTHERN MEBCDBK. w i h v - N The Necessity for a New Party. Col. F. 8. Norton in Chicago Presa. Avaricious and ambitious men are ever contriving to obtain from the masses both property and power, inasmuch as they have not the physical strength to enforce by arms that which they covet, they resort to cunningly devised laws, and it is thus the crafty few are enabled to obtain dominion over the unthinking rrany. Shylock with his money and the ambitious soldier with his drawn sword have for ages kept the world in subjection. So long as avarice and ambition exist , .so long will there be une- qual and unjust laws—and it fol- lows as a matter of course that in- asmuch as avarice and ambition are unburn in the human breast, the conquest for pelf and power will continue forever. But when the laws benome so oppressive as to become unendur- able, there comes a reaction and the masses assert their natural rights. These natural rights which havf been usurped can be regained only...

The United States Constitution breathes the fraternal ppirit of "equal rights to all and special privileges to non«." The state constitution emphatically says, "per utilities ana monopolies are contrary to the genius of a fre« government and shall never be allowed." But, while demooratic and republican statesmen, on the watch to vers, stood guard over the shadow, foreigners, shylocks and corporations have stolen away the substance of constitutional republican government until, under the name of a government, "of the people, by the people, and for the people," we have, in fact, a govern- ment of the corporations, by the corporations an<i for the corpora- tions. Corporations are, essentially, per- petuities, because they exist per- petually and do not die as indi vid uals; and they are, essentially, monopolies, because they always, in the very nature of things, monopolize, combine,...

Thinkl seriously, earnestly, oandidly! and then, if you prefer a mongrel aristooracy to a republic; if you want a government of corporations, by corporations and for corpora- tions; if you are willing that your- self, your family, your friend* and neighbors, and all the industrial classes shall be hewers of wood and drawers of water for the mon- eyed aristocracy, vote the demo- cratic or republican ticket, it's immaterial which, and you will surely help with one vote in that direction.

For three weeks the papers hac notified the people that Governor Hogg would open his supplementa campaign in Dallas on the 1st o: October, 1892, in grand style. That a big crowd might be secured to give zest to the anticipated grane swell in Hogg's interest, flaming hand bills flooded the highways and byways informing the people that thirty large beeves and other animals in proportion would be barbecued, and that ample arrange ments had been made to feed 2 5,- 000 in royal style on this august occasion. Hogg's lo^al supporter notifiec all their friends that this grane triumphal procession was gotten up for the express purpose of demon strating to the people the unpara lelled popularity of the governor and at the same time paralizo Clark's and Nugent's supporters by the immensity of the crowc assembled to pay homage to "me and Horace, by gatlins."

Oct. 18, 1891. SOUTHKBM mUKUlfHi. w 1 IB .' Kearby and Abbott in Bosque. BUCK BARRY. I have just heard a discussion between Hon. J. Abbott and Maj. Kearby. Kearby in behalf of the people showed the cause of their depression, financially, and their only relief was by their own ac tion, to stick together and vote their manhood and patriotism in stead of their sectional hate and party prejudices. He told us the rebel war was over and peace was permanently made between all the brave and patriotic men who h*d fought it. From demonstrations made by the audience quite a ma i'ority ■ accepted all he said as a Lying truth. Abbott, in behalf of the cor- porate mon^y powers, made one oí the best efforts of his liie in apolo- gizing for the acts oi the fíity-tec- ond congress and the old monopoly party that murdertd the honest dollar of our daddies.

In their remarkable senility at a new measure they seem menaced with danger from some incurable atrophy. The emotion is too great for anything but exclamations, and they¡iterate and reiterate "it will cost eight billions to buy and to hold the railroads." Having so exclaimed, mute astonishment seizes them. They imagine the argument is exhausted, the propo sition is reduced to an absurdity, and nothing more is to be said. "They will cost eight ¡billions. It will bankrupt the country to pay such a sum of...

And herein is the solution of this part of the ques- tion. A new needed measure, or- iginating in the ongoing of society, must gather about it all the inci- dents necessary to give it effect. The true ground is, That the government should carry on what- ever is for the general good; for, when not corrupted, we must ever bear in mind that the government and the people are one and the same.

SOUTHERN MEBCVBV. Oct. *0, I8#8 II ir SUCCESS IS OUR WATCHWORD. The Southern Mercury has been mailed to several hundred persons in and out of Texas who had not subscribed for it themselves. In every case the paper was or- dered and paid for by their kins- men, friends or neighbors, with the hope that such could in this way be induced to read, think and aot intelligently. We are pleased to announce that the experiment has proved a great success. Out of the entire amount sent in this way, only three or four have get their back up about it. One ot these kickers writes: "My mind is in its socket—Hogg and Cleveland is good enough for me, therefore stop sending me your paper." The reading public understands that the editor of the Mercury has positive ideas, based on com- mon sense, and this is why they subscribe for it and send it to their friends.

Oct. tO, 1898. SOUTHERN MERCURY. ■ « T Solid Silver Argument! HON. JXO. C. BELT/, MONTROSE, COL. To get out of parallel with an old political party which has given consolation and pleasant assooia tions iii the past produces sadness and regret that such a step should be necessary. If the interests of country, home, family and duty re quire it, the step should be taken, however painful the duty may be. Every political party has its name and platform. Eveiy platform has its central figure and its trimmings. While the name of an old party becomes very dear to the devotee, the principals ot the party should be uppermost in his appreciation. If the party name and the most sacred and beneficial principles separate, the devotee must take his choice and follow the. name or the principles. He can't follow both. The name can but flatter hi3 pride, the principles may feed and clothe his family. In my humble opinion the people must make this important on "rice. One of the cardinal principles of...
